Stay together, stay strong and keep meeting challenges head on.

The casual, tailgate-like atmosphere at the event allowed the large crowd of Tech supporters the chance to personally talk with Guice along with athletics director Tommy McClelland, head football coach Skip Holtz, men’s basketball head coach Michael White, women’s basketball head coach Tyler Summitt and head baseball coach Greg Goff.
